I saw a cute cupcake pocket card, and decided to make a flower pot pocket card. To create the flower pot, I began with a 9"x 3.5" card stock base, and scored it at 2" and 5.5". I then folded the score line flaps in opposite directions, other wise known as mountain valley. I border punched the lip of the flower with a Martha Stewart border punch, and used a stamp pad to "dirty-up" the edges of the flower pot.
I used the pink silk ribbon to hold the flower pot together, and just tied it in a not. The card on the inside is 4.5"x 2.5". The greenery is the only Cricut cut; cut from the Strait from the Nest cart. The leaves on the bottom of the flower pot, I cut from the top branches to thin them out a bit.
The flowers were originally white flowers from a Brides Magazine pack. I inked 4 blue and 4 pink. Once the flowers were dry I attached them with yellow brads, and used dimensionals for the flowers.
The sentiment did not photograph very well. It came from a Kelly Panacci clear stamp pack. Once the sentiment dried, I used a butterfly stamp from a set of Scrappy Cat stamps to put over the sentiment. I really like the added touch this brought to the inside of the card.
Overall, it was a pretty simple card to make, but fun.
